River Readings: poet Rebecca Lindenberg
September 10, 2013
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Wilson Center

Poet Rebecca Lindenberg will open the 2013-2014 River Readings series, which brings literary artists to campus each year from around the country. A reception will be held after the reading. She is the author of Love: An Index, published in 2012 by McSweeney's Poetry Series. The book tells the story in verse of her passionate relationship with Craig Arnold, a much-respected poet who disappeared in 2009 while hiking a volcano in Japan.  Lindenberg's essays and criticism have appeared widely, and she has been a guest blogger for the Best American Poetry Blog. Lindenberg's honors include a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a MacDowell Colony Residency, and a fellowship at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center.

Augustana College Women's & Gender Studies program presents the first presentation of the
2013-14 Tea Hour Series:
"Taking Back Birth"
by Alisha Smith, Area Coordinator in Residential Life
Wednesday, September 11, 2013
4:00 - 5:00 PM
Evald Great Hall

Throughout the history of womankind, women's bodies have been at the forefront of debate.  What can we do to them, for them, or against them has been debated, legislated, and manipulated.  Perhaps in the most combative of arenas has been the topic of birth and women's role in this fundamental aspect of humanity.  We will explore the rise of birth legislation and propaganda beginning with the Industrial Revolution following through to today's current birth climate both nationally and globally.  Ultimately, this will lead to a discussion of the rights of women over their own bodies and the million dollar question, "Whose birth is it?"  This event is free for faculty, staff, and students.  Tea and snacks will be provided.  If you have questions, please contact wgs@augustana.edu

MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES MINOR
OPEN HOUR DISCUSSION
Thursday, September 12, 2013
11:30 AM (new time)
Old Main 117

All faculty who might be interested in being part of the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Minor is invited to an open hour to discuss this on Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 11:30 AM in Old Main 117. In the past this minor has listed courses mostly from History, Art History, and Literature, but there are faculty in other departments who may wish to be included in this interdisciplinary program and could easily contribute. There is also room for contributions from those in the sciences who are interested in the history, philosophy, and development of scientific thought and those in athletics who are interested in developing an academic approach to games, sport, and martial arts.

 




FACULTY RESEARCH FORUM
Fall Meeting: Monday, September 16, 2013
4:00 - 6:00 PM
Olin 304

The Faculty Research Forum (FRF) is a relaxed and friendly, interdisciplinary working group of scholars interested in learning from others on campus and engaged in supporting each other as we write, reflect, and think. We meet to discuss our colleagues' work-in-progress, which might include book chapters, grant applications, journal articles, book proposals, and other forms of scholarly work and communication. Volunteers from our ranks submit their work to the group, often including questions or themes they would like to sound out at the forum. We gather to discuss and provide constructive critiques - all in an effort to improve our research and writing. All are welcome, and in the past the group has consisted of colleagues from all ranks and divisions. You do NOT need to commit to share a work-in-progress to be part of the group, nor do you need to commit to attending all of our sessions. If you have a pre-tenure leave project planned for the year, the FRF might be a great way to support one of several phases of your work and to provide a supporting research community. Similarly, the FRF would be a great place for anyone choosing the new project-based post-tenure review process.  

The fall term meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 16th 4:00-6:00 in Olin 304. Tentatively, the winter FRF is scheduled for Monday of Week 8 (1/27) and the spring FRF for Monday of Week 4 (3/31).  If you are interested in being part of the Faculty Research Forum or just in learning more, please contact Brian Katz, x 8277. If you would like to get feedback on a piece of work-in-progress, please include (1) a brief description of the project and (2) the term(s) in which you expect the project to be ready for a round of feedback and discussion. I will send another note to the campus at the start of the term (after the dust settles a little) and in the lead-up to the forum each term.

 




ARCHAEOLOGY PROGRAM DISCUSSION
Tuesday, September 17, 2013
10:30 AM
Evald Great Hall

In response to interest expressed over the years in developing an Archaeology program at Augustana, a meeting to gauge faculty interest in pursuing the idea further is scheduled for Tuesday, September 17, 2013.

Archaeology is most commonly categorized in the U.S. as one of the four sub-disciplines of Anthropology, and it is often taught as part of Classics programs as well.  Other fields that often have a stake in archaeology programs include Art History, Art, Geology, Geography, and History. In that sense, it is inherently interdisciplinary, spanning the hard sciences and the humanities.  For that reason, it is a great fit for a liberal arts and sciences college like ours.  Furthermore, we know that there has been consistent student interest in Archaeology.  The Classics department has sent students on to graduate studies in Archaeology, and the (relatively new) Anthropology program has already sent two students on to Archaeology graduate programs as well.  

Resources are, of course, extremely limited at the moment, and while some support might be provided for an A/PT to teach an additional course annually, a new faculty line is not an option at this time.  This means that we are limited to discussing a concentration or a minor at best, not a new major.  The feasibility of creating a respectable program is a key concern.  In order to create a solid minor or concentration, we would need to (a) see if we have enough current courses that could be cross-listed, (b) add at least some sort of Intro-to-Archaeology class, and (c) create some sort of fieldwork experience / methods class at the senior level.  If all else fails, an advising program ought to be a realistic possibility.

Please contact Adam Kaul with your thoughts about the idea by email or phone, or better yet come to a discussion about it in Evald's Great Hall on Tuesday, September 17th at 10:30 AM.

 




LGBTQ SAFE ZONE TRAINING FOR FACULTY & STAFF
Thursday, September 19, 2013
4:45 - 6:45 PM
Old Main 310


Many of us have Safe Zone stickers on our office doors indicating we are supportive of LGBTQ students. This is great! But are we prepared to offer the support students need? The Women's & Gender Studies program is offering an upcoming Safe Zone training session on Thursday, September 19, 2013 if you'd like to learn more.  To register for this session, please click HERE.

On completion of the session, you will receive a Safe Zone sticker with a gold star to indicate you have completed the training, along with an Augustana-specific Safe Zone manual with helpful information and resources. Everyone is welcome, and snacks will be provided, though space is limited to 20 people per session on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

There will be sessions during Winter and Spring terms if you cannot attend the one on September 19th.  Please contact Women's & Gender Studies if you have questions.

 




MEETING REGARDING CONSORTIUM COLLEGES
AND DEVELOPING SUMMER ONLINE COURSES
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
11:30 AM
Olin 207

Several years ago, a group of schools like ours formed a consortium to advance our shared commitment to a residential liberal arts education.  We believe that this shared commitment creates an opportunity to respond to challenges in innovative ways, by embracing new opportunities without compromising our core identity. 

You are invited to participate in a preliminary discussion with students and faculty from our MALLA (Midwestern Alliance for Learning in the Liberal Arts) consortium schools (Augustana, Luther, Illinois Wesleyan, Gustavus Adolphus, Alma, Wittenberg, and Washington & Jefferson) regarding your interest in offering summer online courses as a pilot effort.  Several faculty members have expressed ideas for these sorts of courses, and this is a good opportunity to everyone to gauge the extent of faculty interest. 

We are looking for faculty who teach courses that may lend themselves to an asynchronous, online format. These courses will not be anything like the "MOOCs" you may have read about. Instead, we see them as small (with a cap of 20) and selective (enrollment limited to our own students and those at our consortium schools). It's possible that such courses might include collaborative teaching across institutions. There will be grant funding available for faculty who propose and develop a summer course.

If you are interested in exploring this possibility, please email Margaret Farrar, and let her know if you are able to attend our first conversation on the subject on September 24, 2013 at 11.30 am in OM 127. If you're interested but can't attend that session, let her know that as well.

 




 
AUGUSTANA ART MUSEUM PRESENTS
"Rosebud Sioux: A Lakota People in Transition"

During fall term the Augustana Art Museum will present "Rosebud Sioux:  A Lakota People in Transition."  The exhibit features 75 vintage photographs taken by Swedish American John Anderson (1869-1948) during his long residence at the Rosebud reservation and capture images of the Lakota people as they moved from their nomadic traditions to reservation life.  The curators of the exhibit, Claes Jacobson and Eva Anderson have also collected a number of contemporary photographs and artifacts to complement Anderson's work. 

In connection with the exhibit, the museum and the Swenson Center will sponsor a conference on October 4 & 5 in Larson Hall, Bergendoff building.  Titled "Indians and Immigrants-Entangled Histories", the conference opens on Friday, October 4, 2013 at 7:00 PM with a public lecture by Dr. Gunlog Fur of Swedens's Linnaeus University who researches Native American history and cultural encounters during colonization.  A variety of concurrent sessions are planned for Saturday, October 5, concluding in the afternoon with a walking tour of the exhibit by curators Jacobson and Anderson.  Your students are welcome to attend the conference.

 




16TH ANNUAL FRIEZE LECTURE SERIES

The Rock Island Public Library and Augustana College are partnering to offer a four-week lecture series with the theme, "It IS a Small World After All: Globalism's Impact on Literature, Art and Culture." Lecurers will consider transnational novels, intercontinental art and the future of ethnicity.

The lecture series is offered in the Rock Island Main Library Community Room, 401 19th Street, at 2 p.m. on Tuesdays, October 22, 29, November 5 and 12. Coffee and conversation follow the lectures. Presentations are free and open to the public.  Dates, presenters and topics include:

Tuesday, October 22: Peter Kivisto will speak on the role of ethnicity in the 21st century, setting the stage for a series that explores the gradual erosion of racial and societal dividing lines.

Tuesday, October 29: Margaret Morse will provide an overview of African art from the college's collection, examining the exchange of influences between African and non-African cultures while highlighting the growing prominence of African textiles in Augustana's Art Museum.

Tuesday, November 5: Benjamin Mier-Cruz will speak on the Swedish crime novel as a genre. Works by Steig Larsson, Camilla Lackberg and Henning Mankell provide a framework for understanding the incongruence of the huge popularity of violent fiction in a relatively tranquil national culture.

Tuesday, November 12: Katie Hanson will speak on one of Britain's foremost authors, Kazuo Ishiguro. Never Let Me Go, the 2005 novel for which Ishiguro won the Booker Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, was chosen by Augustana's faculty as the common summer reader for this year's entering class.

For more details about events at the Rock Island Library, call 309.732-7303.

 




FACULTY RETIREE PROCEDURES

For faculty retiring in May, the college requests that notification is made to Academic Affairs in the previous calendar year within the months of August or September. September 20 will serve as the deadline for payroll data entry in order to place upcoming retirees on nine-month pay schedules. This will allow benefits and salary to cease as of May 31, as well as allowing upcoming retirees ample time to coordinate enrollment and transition to Medicare and/or Social Security benefits.

 




GUEST LECTURER
WALK ON THE WILD SIDE: FROM GARDEN SPACE TO GAME SPACE IN THE HOUSE OF OCTAVIUS QUARTIO IN POMPEII
Thursday, February 6, 2014
7:00 - 8:30 PM
Larson Hall, Bergendoff Building

Dr. David Fredrick of the University of Arkansas will be giving a lecture entitled "Walk on the Wildside: From Garden Space to Game Space in the House of Octavius Quartio in Pompeii" on Thursday, February 6, 2014. Sponsored by the Classics and Art History Departments with the support of Geology and History, this lecture will demonstrate Dr. Fredrick's innovative uses of the Unity game engine and gaming technology to advance our understanding of architectural space and decorative ensembles in Pompeii. The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Augustana Museum Art Gallery, where the Roman works in our collection will be highlighted.

Dr. Fredrick is Associate Professor of Classical Studies and Director of Humanities at the University of Arkansas.  He is the author of Roman Gaze: Vision, Power, and the Body (JHUP 2002), and has published numerous articles on Roman poetry, Roman houses, and Rome in cinema. Among other grants and awards, Dr. Fredrick received the grand prize at Unity Technologies' Mobile Generation Education Competition in 2011 and the Honors College Teaching Innovation Grant in 2006 to advance the technologies used in the teaching and research he draws on in this lecture.

 




THE SAINT JOHN'S BIBLE COMES TO ROCK ISLAND

For the 2013-2014 academic year Campus Ministries at Augustana College will partner with St. Mary's Monastery of Rock Island to bring The Saint John's Bible to Rock Island.

What is the St. John's Bible? 
In 1998, Saint John's Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. It is something truly remarkable to see.  Described as a gift of sacred art, it is the first illuminated, handwritten Bible of monumental size to be commissioned by a Benedictine monastery in more than 500 years. The entire Bible using the New Revised Standard Version is presented in seven volumes of 1,150 pages. Donald Jackson is one of the world's foremost calligraphers and the senior scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's Crown Office at the House of Lords in London, England. He also is an elected fellow and past chairman of the prestigious Society of Scribes and Illuminators. The Saint John's Bible is a one of a kind work of art. No commission of this kind had been undertaken since the advent of the printing press in the 15th century. 
http://www.saintjohnsbible.org

At Augustana
For the 2013-2014 Academic Year,  Augustana College will participate in the program "A Year With The Saint John's Bible." Throughout the academic year, Augustana will host various events for the Quad Cities Community, including lectures, exhibits, open houses and Interfaith events. Institutions such as Yale, Kansas State, Seton Hill, Malone University and Notre Dame have all participated in the Heritage Program. Additionally, this past fall the Getty Museum in Los Angeles featured the Bible in their exhibit The Art of Devotion in the Middle Age.

A planning team including faculty, administrators and students are working on a series of events in conjunction with the The Saint John's Bible. On behalf of that team, we wanted you to know about this opportunity for using The Saint John's Bible during the upcoming academic year. More information will be available soon, but to begin here are some particular items you might be interested in for academic planning purposes.

Use of the Volumes
September 2013-May 2014  
 2 Heritage Edition Volumes of The Saint John's Bible will be on permanent display in the Tredway Library for the duration of the academic year. These are available for use in classrooms and other curricular and co-curricular forums.

November 15 - December 15, 2013
There will also be a a month long exhibit in the Tredway Library of the full volume set of the Heritage Edition  of The Saint John's Bible.

Use of Images

For those who would be interested in using images from The Saint John's Bible, you would be granted full digital and copyright access. Please contact Kristen Glass Perez for more information.

Special Lectures
November 21, 2013
Tim Ternes, Director/Curator of The St. John's Bible
"From Inspiration to Illumination: An Introduction to the St. John's Bible"

March 13-14, 2014

For the 2013-2014 academic year Campus Ministries at Augustana College will partner with St. Mary's Monastery of Rock Island to bring The Saint John's Bible to Rock Island.

On March 13-14 Dr. Amy-Jill Levine will be the 2014 Geifman Scholar-In-Residence and offer a public lecture as well as other forums on campus using illuminations from the St. John's Bible from her work as a scholar interpreting the Jewish nature of the New Testament. 

If you have any questions, please contact Kristen Glass Perez. Your ideas and suggestions for use of The Saint John's Bible on campus and in Quad Cities communities are welcome! 

 




MIDWEST FACULTY SEMINARS

If you are interested in attending one of the seminars this year, send an email to Margaret Farrar. You can read more about the MFS here: http://mfs.uchicago.edu/?conference.html

DIGITAL HUMANITIES 
NOVEMBER 14-16, 2013

Digital technologies have longed promised to alter the way that humanists approach their work. Only recently, however, have new media forms and novel statistical methods begun to make major inroads into the broad range of disciplines that constitute the humanities as a field. This seminar explores the contours of the humanities digital turn, with equal attention given both to the ways in which humanists are approaching new media studies and to how data mining, statistical modeling and other quantitative methods are enabling scholars to pose new questions about various "old" media forms. It therefore asks, for instance, about the status of video games as works of art, about the ethical and political questions raised by life in online worlds, and about the ways in which digital technology is transforming the study of visual culture. The seminar also gives equal time, however, to scholars interested in the work of cinemetrics, the digital analysis of classical texts, and the ways in which "distance reading" and data analysis can give humanists new tools through which to examine literary and cultural history anew. Its goal, in other words, is to survey the breadth and depth of the digital humanities as a scholarly enterprise in order to come to a better sense of how digital scholarship is impacting the work in the humanities today.

NIETZSCHE'S ON THE GENEALOGY OF MORALS
JANUARY 23-25, 2014

Though Friedrich Nietzsche produced many remarkable works, On the Genealogy of Morals is widely regarded as his most influential. For all its importance to philosophers and others who have followed in his wake, however, the precise meaning of many of Nietzsche's claims about the nature of morality remain in dispute, while his influence on fields as diverse as philology, theology, and anthropology is sometimes hard to see. This seminar therefore reconsiders On the Genealogy of Morals and its influence on the intellectual history of the last two centuries, with a particular emphasis on detailed examination of some of Nietzsche's key terms and their reception throughout subsequent generations of scholarly investigations. What exactly does Nietzsche mean by "genealogy"? What is the proper understanding of ressentiment? What's wrong with Judeo-Christian morality as it existed in Nietzsche's time? How have Nietzsche's answers to these questions informed the ways that scholars across the humanities and social sciences have approached these issues since? Through an exploration of many of the key problems and controversies that have occupied readers of On the Genealogy of Morals over the years, the seminar aims to develop a more detailed understanding of this philosophical seminal text.

CAPITALISM AND ITS FUTURES 
FEBRUARY 20-22, 2014

Not long ago, many economists and policy makers regarded the big questions of economics as essentially solved. Indeed, in the aftermath of the Cold War, capitalism's hegemony was largely unquestioned, and economic policy was regarded as sufficient to smooth out the worst effects of the modern business cycle. In the face of growing inequality, perpetual economic crisis, and looming climate catastrophe, however, the foundations of this political and economic consensus has been thrown increasingly into doubt. This seminar therefore explores the state of capitalism and its futures, focusing in particular on questions of growth, inequality, ecology and sustainability as they are conceptualized in the present. What, for instance, is the history of growth as an economic idea? Can we continue to assume its centrality as we move into the future? What, moreover, is the place of inequality in our current state of economic affairs? Can inequality as it exists today be justified? Or does it throw the long term stability of our economy into doubt? What does global warming presage for the future of the global economy? Can analyses of it be approached in purely economic terms? Or does it pose a problem of such enormity so as to overwhelm the boundaries of economic thought? What, in the end, is the future of capitalism as a system of providing for the general welfare? Can it continue to provide for human need in its present form? Or do contemporary concerns about inequality and ecological crisis force a re-thinking of how we approach the intersections of economics and human well being?

THE FUTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION 
APRIL 24-26, 2014

Why does college cost so much? What should students learn? What is a college education actually good for? These are not new questions, but the recent economic downturn, coupled with increased interest in MOOCs and other forms of online learning, have made them of particular concern for students, parents, faculty and administrators alike. This seminar explores these questions, with an eye towards re-tracing the path by which higher education, once a heavily subsidized public good, has come to the straits in which it finds itself today. What, historically, has driven growth in higher education costs? Where are new cost-savings to be found? How have we thought about the value of the liberal arts over the years? What is their chief justification now? What has been the relationship between higher education and private business in the past? And what defines that complex set of relationships today? At a time when student debt is on the rise and job prospects are seemingly dimmer all around, this seminar hopes to come to terms with the place of higher education in an increasingly stagnant economy, and thus with how educators and administrators can better approach the problems confronting higher education today.
